This report provides countrywide and state-specific premium and exposure information for noncommercial dwelling fire insurance and for homeowners insurance package policies. Homeowners package policy data are for the homeowners owner-occupied policy forms (HO-1, HO-2, HO-3, HO-5 and HO-8), the tenant policy (HO-4) and the condominium/cooperative unit owner’s policy (HO-6). This narrative describes the data and discusses the way economic, demographic and natural phenomena impact the price of homeowners insurance.
Data consist of written exposures, expressed as house-years,1 and aggregate written premiums by state and countrywide for the 2013 data year. Premium and exposure information was collected for all states and the District of Columbia. The data are displayed in five tables. Three tables show individual state and countrywide exposures grouped by 1) policy type; 2) individual policy form; and 3) amount of insurance coverage, divided into ranges, with percentages of total exposures provided. The last two tables display by-state and countrywide average premiums. Average premiums are calculated by dividing premiums by exposures for each policy form and range of insurance coverage, and represent the cost of a year of coverage. Percentages of totals are provided.
Policy forms included in the report are described in detail in the following section. The ranges of insurance amounts extend to higher levels of coverage for the dwelling fire and homeowners owner-occupied policy forms than those for the tenant and condominium insurance, because premiums for the latter two policy forms do not include coverage for the residential structure.
To the extent that data are reported to statistical agents, data for statutorily established FAIR plans are included.
